There are three options with respect to physiotherapy: in-person, virtual or home visits

 

IN-PERSON PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy in this setting involves the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions (acute and chronic), injury prevention and educating clients on workplace adjustments or return to sport guidelines.

Physiotherapists treat:

  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Tendon injuries
  • Lower back and neck pain
  • Post-surgery conditions
  • Sports injuries

At Skyward Active Health Centre we have specialized training in:

  • Sports physiotherapy
  • Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
  • Concussion Assessment and Treatment
  • Manual Therapy
  • Vestibular Rehabilitation

VIRTUAL PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy in this setting involves connecting with clients through their computer or phones. We send our clients an email link and they open up the link to a video chat with the physiotherapist.

What can we assess and treat virtually? Everything we would in clinic....

  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Tendon injuries
  • Lower back and neck pain
  • Post-surgery conditions
  • Sports injuries

How would we do it?

  • Do a comprehensive subjective assessment as to how the injury happened and what the symptoms are
  • Watch movement and do strength tests
  • Educate the client on what will be involved in the rehab process
  • Provide exercises to assist in rehabilitation

What are the advantages?

  • Clients take charge of their own rehab and do not rely on the physiotherapist to "fix" them
  • Education is the key to success and this mode allows us to spend quality time on education
  • Physiotherapist can see you in your home environment so we can see where you sit, how you do your exercises, what your home gym looks like etc.
  • You do not need to leave your home - saves time and money!

 

Home care physiotherapy

Physiotherapy in this setting involves the physiotherapist coming to your home to do an assessment or treatment.  Please note that we are currently doing virtual assessments first and then suggesting home physiotherapy if needed.

Physiotherapists can assess and treat everything they would in the clinic including:

  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Tendon injuries
  • Lower back and neck pain
  • Post-surgery conditions
  • Sports injuries

 What are the advantages of in-home physiotherapy?

  • The physiotherapist comes to your home so you do not have to go anywhere!
  • The physiotherapist can see you in your home environment
